Wedding guest attire - what I wore to my friend's wedding

A few weeks ago I wrote about suitable dresses for wedding guests, and I listed a numer of pretty dresses I had my eye on. I never told you which one I went for in the end though... and the answer is - none! I found a completely different dress.
This dress is from New Look, and it's by the brand AX Paris - one of New Look's more fancy brands, which specialises in dresses for special occasions.
The dress is of a creamy, almost light pink colour, and it's made of sheer material, which is one of the things I really love about this dress, along with the ruffled detailing around the bust, and the dipped hem. In short - I just love everything about this dress!
The shoes I'm wearing are the ones I featured in my post the other day about brightening up a grey summer's day with some colour.
I am usually really lazy when it comes to my hair but for this special occasion I curled my hair using a pair of ghd straighteners, and I added a couple of pretty fabric flowers to the side of my head - bought from H&M.
The bag is a clutchbag (with the option to wear is as a shoulder bag with the help of a small silver chain) and I found this in New Look as well. I guess I've been a big fan of this shop lately. It has a creamy base covered in black lace. Gorgeous!
